Central to this structure was the development of two economies - one legal and one illicit. If there was a unique English pathway of industrialization, it was less a distinct entrepreneurial and techno-centric culture, than one predominantly defined within an institutional framework spearheaded by the excise and a wall of tariffs.

This process reached its peak by the end of the 1770s. The structure then quickly started to crumble under the weight of the fiscal-military state and Pitts calculated policy of concentrating industrial policy around cotton, potteries and iron - at the expense of other taxed industries. The breakthrough of the new political economy was the erosion of the illicit economy- the smugglers free trade now became the states most powerful weapon in the war against non-legal trade. If at the beginning of the period covered by this book state administration was predominantly deregulated and industry regulated, by the close the reverse was the case.
